Do the Cubs Really Dominate My Cardinals as Much as it Seems?
As a St. Louis Cardinals fan, there's nothing worse than playing the Cubs. It's a no-win situation. If the Cards win? Well, you're expected to. If the Cubs win? Let's just say I hear it from every Cub fan I know. This year, I've been "hearing it" a lot from my Cub friends. And after last night's 17-run outburst from the Cubs...I practically needed noise-silencing headphones.
This year, the two teams have played seven times and the Cubs have won four. Sure, that's not bad unless you consider it's 30% of Chicago's win total in 2014. Over the last three years, the Cardinals are 25-18 against the Cubs. The Cardinals overall record during that time is 204-159, while the Cubs are 140-221. Do the Cubs get jacked to play the Cardinals, while it's just another game/series to St. Louis?
Tonight's a new night, and Redbird-ace Adam Wainwright is on the hill. The tables will turn, right? Maybe not. In his last start against the Cubbos, Adam allowed a season-high six runs.
Having said all this, I LOVE baseball and can't wait for tonight's first pitch.
